Graduate and Executive Programs

Rock Solid graduate studies for more than 60 years.

Rockford University has provided opportunities for graduate study. Our graduate programs offer a sound academic tradition which can be tailored to suit individual needs. Small classes and a professional, experienced, and dedicated faculty provide our graduate students with a quality learning experience.

  • Since 1952, our Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree has established a proud tradition as a teacher of teachers. Our MAT graduates have distinguished themselves as educational leaders throughout the nation.

  • Our Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree began in 1981 after extensive study of the needs of the Rockford area business and corporate community. With these needs in mind, our MBA program has become a vital and integral part of both the community and the University.

  • Since 2010, our Executive Development Program (EDP) offers a series of seminars that are carefully designed to nurture leadership talent for the future. This 20-seminar, fast-paced, executive-level program confers a Certificate of Organizational Leadership.
